🏡 Did you know that radon is a silent danger in many homes? This radioactive gas is odorless, tasteless, and invisible, making it easy to go unnoticed. But it's the second leading cause of lung cancer, responsible for thousands of deaths each year.
🏡 Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and chemically inert radioactive gas. It is formed by the natural radioactive decay of uranium in rock, soil and water. Testing for radon is the only way to know how much is present in a building.
🏡 Data provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that 77 of the 100 counties in North Carolina have radon indoor air levels above action level of 4 pCi/L. Testing for radon is simple and can be done inexpensively. The NC Radon Program, through a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, is making short-term radon test kits available for free during January. You may order only one test kit per household. Supplies are limited. https://secure.airchek.com/cgi-bin/ncdhhs.cgi
